This is a sacred Tara statue in Howell, New Jersey. It is said She has spoken to people a few times in the past.

She is very holy. Just to gaze at this Tara is a blessing.

    Hi Rimpoche, I´d like to know more about this statue and her stories of the past that su mention. I have a sister who lives in NJ and I’d like to tell her more about it.

    Greetings from Peru!!!

    Thank you very much Rinpochela. What an auspicious start to my day! “Kam-sia che-che!”

  3. Andrew Chiam on Oct 19, 2010 at 10:40 am

    Thanks Rinpcohe for the posting. I would have been the world most blessed and happiest person if Mother Tara could just have said simple “hi” to me.

    Thank you for the posting. Real Bliss. Have saved Her Holy Image onto my computer, will transfer to my phone too.

    Wow – the speaking Tara! As all Tara statues are already superbly blessed, imagine one that can speak!

    We often wonder about miracles and how there is an intense lack of it now. Perhaps it is not that there are lack of miracles, but we lack the merits to actually view it, experience it or even hear it.

    How kind of Rinpoche to share this immensely scared Tara picture with us all. May we all truly make that connection with its blessed qualities and be inspired to practice Dharma even more. May we create the causes for us to view and experience miracles in our lifetime.

    Mother Tara, please guide me and remain inseparable from me forever until enlightenment is reached. Dispel all my obstacles and enable realisation to blaze up in my mind.

    This was seen at the Rashi Gempil Ling Temple in New Jersey. Looking at this statue was amazing; the grandeur, elegance, and poise portrayed by this holy Tara statue was captivating. Not only were we blessed to see this statue but we also got to see the Palden Lhamo Thangka that was at the temple. It was breathtaking knowing the story behind it. All the statues and thangkas that we have seen in all the 3 temples (Tashi Lhumpo Centre, Nitsan Temple and Rashi Gempil Ling) have been mind-blowing, and knowing that we are setting our eyes on the same items Rinpoche used to see and prostrate to gives me a feeling that I’m re-living Rinpoche’s childhood when Rinpoche used to visit these holy places. It is such an honour, an immense blessing.

    Also, I got goosebumps when I saw the Vajrayogini statue at RGL!! We thought that we wouldn’t be able to find it after our first visit there because the gen-la there didn’t know about the statue but when Anila said that the statue was still there, my heart skipped a beat and seeing it, my jaw-dropped. It was so beautiful. No wonder Rinpoche was so in awe when Rinpoche peeked at it.

    Tomorrow, we have more 2 more interviews. It’s going to be a good wrap-up to our stay at Howell, New Jersey!!

  8. Anila on Oct 19, 2010 at 6:02 pm

    I believe that Tara may have spoken to a few people in Howell, New Jersey. Howell seems to be a very peaceful suburb with people who are Buddhist inclined. And Rinpoche also has started his Dharma there. I remembered Rinpoche told me when I was in Ganden. There is a 3ft Manjushri statue in the Monastery that speaks. Although I have not heard the Manjushri statue speaks but I believe. Because in the Monastery there are lots of pujas done and children school do lots of chanting. And also High lamas conducting big pujas. A lot of energy will be generated making the statue speak. To non buddhist they may not understand this unexplained situations.

  9. patsy on Oct 19, 2010 at 7:28 pm

    Wow Mother Tara that speaks! May we have the merits to receive and witness this miracles in our lifetime!

  10. Sharon Saw on Oct 19, 2010 at 8:11 pm

    This statue, like many stunning and sacred statues which speak or perform miracles throughout history, is spectacular. However, for me, what is even more stunning and miraculous is our Guru, who speaks to us as often as we would like – who advises us, who is kind to us, who cares for us, who chides us, who teaches us the Dharma and who is always always looking out for us as we stumble through our spiritual journey. That’s why when we take refuge, Namo Gurubey is first, above Namo Buddhaya, because it is very rare that a statue will speak to us or teach us the Dharma whereas that’s what our Guru will do for us until we reach Enlightenment.

  11. firefly on Oct 22, 2010 at 12:56 am

    Guru and Buddha and Yidam all the same nature… due to our delusions we break them apart… actually Tara is our Guru, Guru is Tara… only our tricky mind likes to pray to the more exalted form, mother Tara.. but her reality is the same as Guru’s reality.

    Dear Rinpoche, thank you for sharing the picture of Tara with us.

    A speaking Tara?! Miracle does happened still.. In the modern world now not easy to see a holy Tara like this. How blessed to hear Tara’s speech. We are even more so fortunate to have Rinpoche, a living Buddha who speak and teach us in our language. Rinpoche set up 13 departments of Kechara and bring the holy dharma to the fortunate Malaysian.

  21. Julia on Jul 16, 2012 at 10:05 pm

    Wao! A Tara statue that can speak? We are talking about miracles here.. And She spoken to people for a new times! How blessed for that person being able hear the Holy Tara voice. By hearing the Tara’s voice being able to purify once bad karma. I wished I could meet this sacrad Tara and offerings to Her.

  22. Matthew Charles Bowen on Jan 13, 2014 at 8:41 am

    All flowers of universal compassion go out to you. We are in complete subjection to your voice in which we have heard. Let the Dzogchen path be clear with substance for both the living and the dead till all sentient beings realize there own compassion in divinity…vararahara

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for sharing and blessing us wth this pic. Tara here seems so alive and the way of her pose is like a very natural and relaxed unlike a rigid statue.

  26. Alice Tay on Jan 15, 2014 at 7:30 pm

    Howell, New Jersey , 这个地方对我来说真的是很陌生。。。

    如果不是Rinpoche的背景,我想我真的不会有机会知道这个地方。。

    Tara 就好像我们所知的大慈大悲观世音菩萨,一样的慈悲,救苦救难。。。

    虽然,未曾真正见过这尊Tara,不过从这照片来看,也就如Rinpoche 所说他是多么的神圣与壮严。。。

    感谢Rinpoche , 因为让我大开眼界。。。

    I first had the pleasure of meeting His Eminence Kyabje Yongyal Dorje Chang around 15 years ago in Sera Monastery. I often visited Sera as my first teacher hails from there. Kyabje Yongyal Rinpoche is a very learned scholar, master of tantra, always focused his time on teaching hundreds of students in Sera and in in-depth personal practice. He is extremely devoted to his teachers such as H.H. Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and H.H. Kyabje Zong Rinpoche.

    Dear Eli Levine, It is essential to have a qualified teacher. It would be good to read up more and investigate which teacher suits your aptitude. There is many teachings on youtube also. Perhaps you can read online and watch youtube videos to decide further. I wish you luck as your wish is beneficial. Tsem Rinpoche

    What is interesting is when we learn the dharma and we don’t consistently apply it we wonder why we don’t change and after a few years feel disheartened? Change is what will motivate us to reach higher achievements within dharma. It empowers us to want to achieve more as we can see results within our mind. But if we never apply consistently, contrary to feeling motivated, we will be demotivated to see our minds still the same or sometimes even creeping backwards. Blaming others for our state of mind might seem plausible in the beginning, but to a senior seasoned practitioner it does not make sense. From the side of Dharma it is totally illogical to blame others as that would negate the existence of self created karma, results and imprints. Then everything in samsara is not one’s fault would be the illogical conclusion. Therefore we will again eventually falsely conclude there is no need for enlightenment and hence there are no Buddhas to even begin with. That is the wrong path to stray towards. Taking responsibility and especially applying the teachings of Buddha to ourselves is extremely important from the beginning, middle and end. ~Tsem Rinpoche

    Hello everyone! I am missing a teacher in my life and have had to learn quite haphazardly on my own and without much apparent benefit. I would like to spread dharma practice (not Buddhism, specifically) to government practice and societies as a whole. I have no idea where or how to start, although I have been refining my thoughts on the practice for about 4.5 years now.

    Dear Jim Yeh, What a wonderful update. Please for your next retreat, schedule it for three days and just do 5,000 migtseymas at a time. 10k is too much for a first timer alone. :) But I am happy for you. Keep it up and next time dedicate it for your family, your attainments and all beings in samsara’s enlightenment. Keep up the updates. Thank you. Tsem Rinpoche

    Dear Rinpoche,

    I hope this message finds Your Eminence in the best of health.

    I am writing to let Rinpoche know that I have just completed a Tsongkhapa retreat (10,000 Migtsemas) and have dedicated it to Rinpoche’s long life and my family.

    This was my first retreat ever and honestly, It was a very gruelling experience for both body and mind. In hindsight, I should have planned for a 3 day retreat instead of completing it in 2 days. However, this experience has taught me much and the retreat has re-energized my beliefs and practice (which I seriously needed)

    With folded hands & warmest regards,
    Jim

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

The highest achievements are usually done alone.~Tsem Rinpoche (Sometimes the further you move up and achieve, the less people will be around or unable to keep up. Some cannot understand, accept or wish to do more and they can drop off. Some may wish you well but cannot keep up anyways. The higher your goals, the less most are able to understand or envision. Some may be even against you. But what is important is you stay focused and consistent. After all big achievements are done by only a few and not the majority. Highest achievements are usually done alone or with a very few. Stamina, vision, consistency, focus, care, responsibility and sometimes even a sense of compassion is necessary to achieve anything big. Giving up gets us nowhere, so continuing is a good option. When you make it, some will come back, many will join and the naysayers regret and wished they had stayed. Tsem Rinpoche)

Mother gorilla's heart- A child fell into the gorilla cage. She broke her arms and legs and she was unconcious. A male gorilla came and tried to hurt her. Luckily, a female gorilla rescued her by chasing other gorillas away not to hurt her. This is an instinct of mother animals that take care of their babies. The mother gorilla climbed the 57 ft wall and took the girl to the zoo officer. The girl was sent to hospital and the doctor cured her. Thanks to mother gorilla's kind heart. -From FB (Please always be kind to animal. Never hurt them, kill them or eat them. Tsem Rinpoche)

    Socialite becomes a volunteer in Malaysian soup kitchen
    In the Malaysian capital, Ruby Khong devotes her lunch hours delivering food to the needy, even when the tropical heat and humidity make it hard to breathe. "It was always about myself, what I wanted and that continued on for a while until 1994," she says. That year, she was on a quest for spiritual guidance in India and met a Buddhist monk named Tsem Rinpoche. Read more here: http://www.bbc.com/news/business-29986205

    They pump 'things' into poultry to make it look plump and bigger to attract you to buy. Then you eat whatever they've pumped and think how it builds up in your body? Is your taste buds worth it to risk your health? Tsem Rinpoche

    I just purchased an empty locket from an art store for around $10 and had a nice picture of His Holiness Kyabje Zong Rinpoche inserted in the front and His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche inserted on the others side at home. Attached a str...ing and it's good to wear for blessings. Look how beautiful. I am the type, I devote myself to my practice but I remember it is the sole kindness of the guru's teachings. Without the guru there is no dharma at all as I cannot speak to Buddha directly. Tsem Rinpoche

  • The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    The Girl Who Couldn't Cry - Water is Life
    It's really hard to educate a generation of people born in conditions where they take things for granted. A simple slogan campaign that says, "Save water, It's precious" isn't sticky enough to make inroads. That's exactly where this video steps in: to make people realize how precious water actually is. A brilliant video that follows the heartbreaking story of a young girl that cannot cry. Sounds like fiction? Sadly, it is not.

    Dear everyone, All sentient beings deserve to live, be happy and not hurt, including animals. We should never hurt them or eat them. Look how much this chicken welcomes a hug and love. Observe carefully. Don't eat beings who can feel pain because the karma comes back. Tsem Rinpoche

    The appreciation shown here is so deep and touching.
    Dear friends, See this incredible video. This chimp was found in captivity for many years. Dr Jane Goodall released him into the wild. Look how he comes back to thank her with deep apprecition. It's amazing. Animals have such strong feelings of pain and happiness just like us. We should never hurt them and share with others to not hurt them. Tsem Rinpoche http://www.tsemrinpoche.com
